i guess it is fairly common, however if you put this question to the cruise service personnel they will tell you that they prefer $$$$. Most of the employess send a good percentage of their pay home to their families.

In fact, I've seen this done many times and the crew seem truely appreciative, it does cost them to call home and helps save.

Just make sure it is an international phone card. Lots of people get those AT&T cards but then have a hard time finding a place to use them on the islands or the minute conversion is horrible, Mexico is a good example of a very bad minute conversion.

I haven't seen international phone cards. Where can you buy them?

Cheers,
